Robert "Wobbles" Wright and Mustafa "Ice" Akcakaya are the final players heading to Smash Summit 2 following the conclusion of online fan voting.

Wobbles is considered among the best Ice Climbers mains in the world, and will be the only Ice Climbers at the tournament. He finished fourth at Battle of the Five Gods after upsetting Kevin "PPMD" Nanney in the playoff bracket, and has defeated all of the gods except for Armada in competition. He is ranked 32 on the 2015 Melee It On Me rankings.

Ice is a German smasher widely known for his Sheik. He finished last place in his group at Five Gods, but finished in fourth place at B.E.A.S.T 6 a few weeks ago. In the 2015 Melee It On Me rankings, Ice is ranked 17. He has challenged Eric "ESAM" Lew to a shirtless $100 money match at Smash Summit 2.

Wobbles narrowly missed earning an invite in the second round of invites yesterday. The final day of voting was hectic, with Ice and Wobbles trading position with James "Duck" Ma throughout the day. It was only in the last five minutes that both players were able to pull ahead in the vote and secure the final two spots.

Smash Summit 2 will take place from April 21-24 in Los Angeles.
